Fatty Liver: Usually fatty liver is a consequence of increased body fat, diabetes, or alcohol consumption. Reversal of those precipitating causes can reverse the fatty liver effects. A very small fraction of patients may progress to cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver if the cause of the fatty liver is not addressed appropriately.
